Grimm reapers in PNR

Traditionally death isn’t seen as a particularly sexy figure in fiction. The image of death is usually one of a skeletal creature robed in black armed with a Scythe and ghostly in it’s movements. Death is the calling of the Grimm Reaper. Death is what most humans fear most.

Some authors have taken the concept of death its bearer and turn it on it’s head. Grimm Reapers have now become the Hero and Heroines of their own stories.After all what’s not fascinating about those who collect souls, or control whether you live or die

Since I’ve been scouring the list of Paranormal Romance Novels, I’ve come across a few of these novels and figured you guys would like a short list of your own to explore.

As always, if you think there is an author I or the readers of Smart Girls should know about I’m up for you posting in the comments.

First up we have Mina Carter with, The Reaper and The cop


Next we have Kate Serine with Grimm Consequences


And finally Lori Sjoberg with Grave Intentions

  1. Darynda Jones series starts with First Grave on the Right also features a reaper. This is a terrific series. I also enjoyed Kate Serine’s Transplanted Tales series.

      • I just thought of another series with a reaper I would like to recommend. The Monster Haven series by R.L. Naquin starts with Monster in my Closet and has delightful characters and the hero is a Reaper who works as a paramedic. It is another humorous series and I highly recommend it. Book 4 Golem in my Glovebox released today.

  2. Ooooo great post, Chudney! I have one to add to this list. A fellow author friend of mine just released Raven’s Breath. Here’s the blurb and the link to check it out!

    Raven can breathe life into you, or siphon the life from you…the choice is yours.

    They say your life flashes before your eyes when you die. But what you didn’t know…your last thoughts determine whether Raven becomes your grim reaper or your saving grace.

    Death has a sinister plan, but his favorite female reaper has been given a new power that will combat his secret mission. The only issue…she hasn’t discovered it yet.

    Will Raven put the pieces together in time, or will Purgatory be destroyed forever?
